Memcached is a distributed memory caching platform, which is used to supercharge the performance of database-powered websites by caching the queries and the replies between the website visitor and the server. In simple terms, every time a given page on such a website is visited, the script calls its database to request the information that should be displayed to the visitor. In case the latter clicks a link to visit another web page, the entire procedure is executed again and this generates lots of database queries and higher server load, even more so if the website has a lot of simultaneous visitors. Memcached "remembers" this information exchange, so if any of these web pages is opened again, the script no longer has to call any info from the database, as everything is provided by the Memcached platform. Thus, the overall load speed of your website will "soar" and you’ll enjoy more pleased visitors and they will be able to navigate through your site much faster. Besides, the Memcached platform updates its cache every time any info in the database is modified, so the site visitors will never see old data.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached distributed memory object caching system with all shared service that we’re offering. It is available as an upgrade, which you can get with only a few clicks via your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached once you order it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the Internet sites that you want to use it for. The first one shows the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the system memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve added, the more content will be cached, which may be a really good idea for traffic-heavy websites with very large databases and many concurrent visitors. In this way, you can optimize the speed of any script-powered website hosted on our servers effortlessly.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached distributed memory caching system as an upgrade with each of our semi-dedicated servers and since it works with any script-based software application, you can use it for each site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, irrespective of what application you have used – WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, a custom app, etc. You can request the upgrade via the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two different things – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. Basically, these things show how many sites will use Memcached and how much memory the system will be able to use to store your content. The two features are offered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a particular amount of system memory. You can make the most of the Memcached system with any kind of website and both you and your website visitors will swiftly distinguish the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

When you acquire a VPS server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra fee, as the content caching platform is offered with all Virtual Private Servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you manage large-size websites, you can accelerate their overall performance effortlessly and the reduced load on your virtual server will enable you to keep using your current Virtual Private Server hosting package instead of moving to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to store information depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a lower-end one, you’ll get at least several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared plan, so the website performance boost will be immense. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform with any database-powered app, no matter if you’ve written it on your own or you’re using a ready-made one like OpenCart, WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the distributed memory caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated machine with only a couple of mouse clicks. You can optimize the performance of any site, regardless of what script-powered web application you’re using or how heavy the Internet site is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 gigabytes and this amount grows considerably with the more powerful dedicated servers. Shortly after the system is activated, it will begin caching info anytime someone visits your website, so, once enough content has been stored, you will distinguish the lowered load on the dedicated server and the optimized performance of your Internet site.
